Animas Canyon Steam
D&RGW C-18 2-8-0 315 leads a special excursion on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad‘s “High Line” above the Animas Canyon in Colorado on August 16th, 2013. Mike Armstrong photo.
Denver & Rio Grande Western 315 was built by Baldwin in 1895 for the Florence & Cripple Creek. It was acquired by the Denver & Rio Grande in 1917 and given the number 425. The number was changed to 315 when the D&RG reorganized as the D&RGW in 1924. It and sister 318 are the only two surviving D&RGW C-18 class narrow gauge steam locomotives. The Rio Grande once had five C-18s.
Animas Canyon Steam shows the diminutive D&RGW 315 steaming across the face of a rocky cliff with the Animas River far below.
About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Animas Canyon Steam are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Animas Canyon Steam print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All TSG prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
We cut our own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what we have in stock but we always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send us a note and we will try to accommodate you. For Animas Canyon Steam we usually use a double mat, often in shades of green, brown and/or gray. Sometimes we use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. We recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
